DESIGNER TALK: DEEPA GURNANI


Designed in New York City, handmade in India, Deepa Gurnani is the brainchild of husband and wife team, Deepa and Jay Lakhani. While studying fashion at London’s prestigious Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, Deepa beaded couture pieces for Alexander McQueen, Emanuel Ungaro, Fendi and Marjan Pejoski. Working closely with these designers not only enabled Deepa to understand couture standards of quality and finish, but also compelled her to experiment with new and unusual beading and embroidery techniques. Combining this experience with her own distinct style and sensibility, inspired her to create her own line.
